The Department of mining was established in 1972. Since its founding the Department of Mining has developed into the nation’s top mining and minerals engineering program. Our research and teaching is related to the understanding and management of the Mining.

The department offers undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programs. For postgraduates, we offer focused research programs. In addition, the department offers joint bachelor degrees program 2+2 with:

  1. The university of Arizona
  2. Freiberg University of Mining and Technology
  3. Moscow State Mining University

A large number of research papers have been published in national and international journals.

The departments, undergraduate and graduate programs expose students to an extensive range of studies that comprise “Mining technology”, “Minerals processing technology”,” Mining mechanical equipment”, “Mining electric equipment”, “Mining management” .

The Departments program has one of the highest job placement rates at the university.

The department has considerable industrial interaction with all the major mining establishments in Mongolia. The Department of mining organizing an annual conference for students and researchers,  scientists. Highly trained engineers and scientists are needed by the minerals industry now and in the future.

The Department of mining  now has equipped research centers and laboratories in the following areas:
